Internship Experience: Los Alamos National Lab
(Penn State News) – Information sciences and technology (IST) major Cory Kitay never imagined he’d be working nearly 2,000 miles away from Penn State Brandywine during his final year of college. The senior recently returned to campus after a 10-week internship program with Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), located in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
During his time with LANL, Kitay worked as an undergraduate computer programmer on a project called PFLOTRAN. He explained that PFLOTRAN is a high performance computing system that was developed to support several real-world scenarios.
